Tony award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg and director Sean Mathias are bringing Truman Capote's novel back to life on the stage. A new adaptation of Breakfast At Tiffany's is set to begin performances in February 2013, with Emilia Clarke playing the iconic role of Holly Golightly. Clarke recently made it big on the small screen through her role of Daenerys Targaryen on Game Of Thrones.

As for the adaptation? It's surely not going to be a flop like the musical. Greenberg explains, “The goal of this version is to return to the original setting of the novella, which is the New York of the Second World War, as well as to resume its tone—still stylish and romantic, yes, but rougher-edged and more candid than people generally remember. Capote was a great writer and a natural maker of plots and Breakfast at Tiffany's has a drive that makes it very alluring to dramatize.”

The production will debut on Broadway at one of the theaters owned by the Shubert Organization.
